I am looking for you katiecake... I saw a great cake with the old lady cartoon from the halmark cards (i think halmark). But I can't remember where I saw it. Do you know who I am talking about? the greeting cards a funny and focus on age...

anyone know what I am talking about?
If I find what I am talking about I will post for you.

good luck

Someone did a cake with a little old lady on it. I don't know what her name is, but she is a known cartoon character old lady. Might be the same one you are talking about. I think her name might actually be Maxine. She might be a cartoon out of the comics from the newspaper.

Maxine is the cartoon from the halmark card... you could do something with her, not sure what... here is a picture of who she is. I am sure there are more things on the web about her.

good luck

I could send you my picture, but Maxine is much funnier, and she tells it like it is! I'm saving this one for my own BD cake this month! Thanks! Janice

Ha! Maxine would be hilarious!

If she's looking for something a little more... 'wholesome', I've got the full-size image of this one I could send you:

thanks everyone they are perfect!!!

Do you have a photo shop program. If so, most of them have an "effect" or option to change any picture to a cartoon or pencil drawing. With that in mind, you can do almost any image you like!

Maxine would definitely be perfect for an old lady cake! Also, I think there is a line of old lady figurines with saggy "parts" - I think they are from Hallmark too, but I don't know the name of them. Can't wait to see your finished cake!
